Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab
The cruise control on my 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 w/ cummins engine behaves irratically. The problem has been getting worse over the last several years and is nearly impossible to use in cold weather. On the first set it engages and SLOWLY accelerates 10 to 15 mph (it takes a minute or 2). It then realizes it is going too fast and even more slowly decelerates to the speed I set it at. If I am lucky at this point it works like it should. If I interrupt this cycle it will not stay at the set speed...until I let it complete its accelerate/decelerate cycle mentioned above. About 5 years ago I had a dealer diagnose the problem. They said a bad computer. I couldn't see dumping $500+ into fixing the cruise, so I got a used one from a bone yard. The symptoms did not change so either this was not the problem, or the part I purchased had the exact same one!
